Research Interests for Jessica F Cantlon

Faculty Mentor: Brannon

Research Interests:
I study the evolution and development of numerical cognition. My current projects investigate 1) whether monkeys and adult humans use the same mental algorithms for making numerical judgments, 2) whether numerical representations are abstract constructs in monkeys and pre-school children, and 3) the cerebral basis of numerical processing in young children using fMRI. Ultimately, I want to know whether 'number' is a primitive, domain-specific cognitive and neural system.
